    When is the best time of day to see the animals on the Kilimanjaro Safari?

    Hello Lisa! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We certainly appreciate returning Guests!

    I love your question because I had such a great experience on Kilimanjaro Safaris during a recent visit! During an evening visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom we decided to climb aboard the safari vehicles to see if the animals might be more active at nighttime. I have to say that it was most likely one of the  best experiences we ever had on Kilimanjaro Safaris! So many of the animals were very active! This took place during the last hour that the park was open. The highlight had to be the lion roaring as he watched over the safari! I was with my three sons, niece, and nephew! They were amazed by the amount of active animals that we saw around every bend! Due to that experience, I will always visit this attraction in the evening just as dark settles in over the safari.

    Lisa, have a great visit!
